Review quote

"Pilgrimage, a classic subject of anthropological inquiry, and tourism, of increasing interdisciplinary interest, are here brought together with mutually illuminating results. Badone and Roseman offer scholars, students, and many others a rich range of cases and analytic approaches in essays that are individually interesting and, collectively, make an important contribution to current anthropological reflection on 'meaningful journeys."show more
